Im calling it that as that is the L plate Im putting on it, maybe this week. I need a raised crossmember for the tank/airbags if anybody has one for sale

Got a new (to me) truck to toy with and modify. Shes got the 2.5 Iron Duke and a 4-speed, which is surprisingly ok on the highway! The engine and trans feel great and the front end is tight! Drove her home from about 1 1/2 away, and 2 hours later, you know where I was found! She came with a camper top, its gone and for sale. A 2-shaft radio, its got a JVC in it now with an Orion GT220 running that 8" PG sub I got for sale and whatever shiny new 4x6s were in there already. That 3-piece grill had to go as well as the old ass lights. The interior had mold in it, so it had to go as well and it got the black carpet and seats from the blazer as well as the center console. Plans are a new fender and bedside, Colorado tails, the airbag stuff from the blazer, as well as the 17s and actually drive and enjoy this one!







power windows on order, taking the regulators from the Blazer this week and it will have the door panels and some new speakers

It was a long day! Even had to sawzall the bolts off the truck!

What's the matter with this thing, what's all that churnning and bubbling, you call that radar screen?:haha:
I was like "wtf is he talking about" and remembered my avatar.

My favs in that are the "we've lost the beeps, the sweeps and the creeps" part
and "I knew it, Im surrounded by assholes" part

so I snagged a headliner and a lit rearview mirror from the pick and pull and got them in, still gotta recover the headliner. I got the power windows wired up and holes cut for the switches. Alarm is done with a bright green led. Cap and plug wires finished up. Holes cut for the air gauges, but they hit the back of the dash so I need to clearance them at work. Bought some white faced gauges to replace the idiot lights and to match the other gauges, just gotta put them in now. Got it registered, the plates and insurance, etc.
Pics to some as soon as something worth it is done

So this is the type of stuff I keep dealing with.
I pulled about 2 cu. ft. of this kind of material out the drivers door and there was more in the cowl and down into the left fender




then I washed out what I could with a garden hose, I think I got most of it

Your truck reminds me a lot of my 85 S10 I had in high school. Picture your truck painted dark brown and that was my truck. Mine had the weaksauce 65hp 1.9L Isuzu motor though...damn thing ate head gaskets. If it would have had the iron duke, I'd probably still be driving it today. It's still sitting at my dad's place back in NC, one of these days I'll tow it out here and hopefully be able to resurrect it...
